What I ate: January 30, 2013

Breakfast: Chorizo breakfast burrito with chorizo, onion, green pepper, jalapeño and egg.


Snack: 1.0 oz. Sriracha chex mix.

Lunch: Marinated tempeh fried wontons. I previously made and froze the filling, but formed and fried the wontons today. 10 wontons, rice ball (omusbe) and soy sauce with scallion for the dipping sauce.


Grilled a rib eye steak. It's one steak, 0.89 lbs., cut in half, to make 2 servings. I sear it off on the grill, then vacuum seal and freeze it. The frozen steak can go right into the sous vide from the freezer to finish cooking. I like my steak rare-ish, so I do 45 minutes at 132°F for a perfect rare to medium-rare steak. And it was a great day for grilling - 56°F outside, very unexpected for January in upstate New York!


Made a batch of tingua poblano - Mexican pork with smoky tomato sauce and potatoes. This dish is delicious but kind of a lot of work to make. Fortunately, it freezes well. Here are my 4 vacuum sealed servings ready for freezing.

Dinner: Meatloaf with rice and gravy.

And 2 glasses o Domaine Père Caroche Côtes du Rhône. Stepping outside my bubble of malbec and cabernet sauvignon, this was delicious. A little jammy, but that's to be expected.


Weight at beginning of the day: 120.8 lbs.
Weight at the beginning of the next day: 122.4 lbs.
